I wrote a while ago that Breville replaced my broken referbed grind and brew with a brandy new one. The machine has been solid as a rock. I use a small brush to clear the grinder chute a couple of times a week, and descale monthly. That's it for maintenance. Loading it up with Coffee Bean Direct dark beans from all over the world keeps Maureen and me happy sippers. Just got a Breville food processor from Woot, which is another great machine.
